the new method introduced in the central bank's report on friday and eight that giving a more accurate picture on the economy and helping policymakers drop plans to promote greater economic activities. all three and asset bubbles and reveals the korean economy is growing closer to its maximum possible growth rate at which the economy can grow without triggering inflation in financial market instability and with the new data showing a potential closing of gap between actual growth and potential growth experts point to a possible interest rate hike leader to see your team who don't. output gap is an indicator for inflation there was a white naked about that get in the past several years but this is expected to be traversed by the end of this year which is expected to lead the central bank to pay in its monetary policies. the new central bank governor. i also said it is a view as the top monetary
policy last month that ended the eighth on an increase in interest rates should be getting up at the alfred that close is an upside risks to inflation. add in onions. to which they sure we put into the signs of rising optimism about the korean economy joining us now is dr came in show professor of international economics at school in pune university welcome. so professor let's start off with some of the data points that we got yesterday for the month of april exports one point nine per cent on the air and some say that people cpi also helped to lead his concerns about the deflationary pressure in the country how did you read the first of all fortunately the court amid a record high performance than exports to the amount of exports in april was that the lord and to pp and on this and the hawaiian is a
record high. primarily because the youth division opponent of the coroner for products repeated and grandpa it's a very popular the only global consumers. and this second reason why it was so high in april. why is it because of the high base effect. because the amount of innate goodness it wasn't in a small in scale. so over the year on the note on my last shoot it from the cia admitted to john. so people are optimistic but do you think it's really really sick for her korea's economy didn't achieve the four percent target set by the p ok what is it the ok of thinking on what are they hoping is going to improve in the global economy you know to achieve that kind of a four percent to three point nine percent export of course we played an important role as the government has been
saying that you know we need to make this type of balance between export activity and that domestic spending. now they went appealed to the projects that should run in the two thousand pork and growth are in a target of four percent and two point nine percent well as our own the detergent made and the projection before the ferry disaster and so on because you know that there is a tragedy it is having tremendous impact on the economy ostensibly the second quarter. because people just stop spending in the ditches cancel their travel plans and know that in the end of the events and programs. i certainly feel that caution came and your comments and it was also an option come across headlines i even talking about turn it into the gap between
the actual headline economic recovery feet ears and the degree of recovery back to average two beans are peeling consumers job seekers and businessmen have one is that he's got a korean thing um no not the time and it is not the be happening that there is no different to korea. oh boy does it is has been coming in as the camera and mobile customer friendly then out export. menus to create jobs but not all of the exports than it does not many jobs. his next job this export. and a jobless growth well the new b ok chief will convene in a sec and monetary policy meeting next week there were no changes to the new bass strait last time we expect this time around while. everybody is aware that the economy is going to be. i'm really torn down in
hand. way below the target growth rate. so something has to be done. policy wise. so i would hope that the bank of korea would do something like that no changing it when lowering interest rates in the event i'll forgo they can be no object about the nature of baptism. this time next week in a perhaps a middle of the dough in a decrease in the base rate. what is expected. i well we'll find out that their stay and thank you for i have for your insights on the joints of a crime and justice. the a's are waiting to hear about their missing loved ones on board the ill fated malaysia airlines plane had been told to go home. we don't have to pony at the new center column
